    Deals on 2020 models?

    With the recent economic downturn, auto sales have dropped and automakers are likely going to offer special deals to entice buyers. In Canada, VW is currently offering $3000 cash back, or 0% financing for 60 months for 2019 GTI. So perhaps VW will also be offering this deal on 2020 GTIs later...

    GTI as a used car purchase

    I really like the GTI and am seriously considering getting a used one 4-5 years from now (2019+ model). However, the reliability concerns are what's holding me back.
